Inspiration in Conservative Dress is a reoccurring series of posts of various modest and feminine outfits to inspire other women to dress modestly and resist society’s pressure to dress provocatively and subscribe to “hook up” culture. Through conservative dress, A Lady of Reason sends a message of resistance to the “sexual revolution” and radical liberal feminism, and the upholding of feminine virtue. Arguably, this could also extend to the support for social conservatism in general. How we dress signals who we are in society. I also want to state that this idea is not mine originally, but done on another religious blog called The Catholic Lady. I was inspired by hers to make a secular version for A Lady of Reason.
Second hand stores are a great place to find modest clothing! Many have the reputation for being frumpy, and some can be, but many stores, such as Savers and Goodwill, for example, sell more recent styles at a fraction of the cost in a department store! Many items including good brand name dresses, skirts tops, and cardigans for under $20! Many even under $10 in the case of cardigans, skirts and tops! Modesty doesn’t have to be expensive 🙂
Here are some articles of clothing found at Savers 🙂
